I'm glad you enjoy the deck! There are a lot of ways to play it and I think it takes a decent amount of thought to play.

  • Sedraxis Alchemist seems like a good pick. I'll try it over AEther Adept for sure.

  • Thoughtpicker Witch is cute, especially if we have a bounce loop. It's another way to combo out and gives us a way to actually use the mana we get from something like a Venser, Shaper Savant loop. I'm not sure what I would slot out, but it could definitely have a home in the deck.

Just did some play testing and it was a lot of fun. I am still missing some core stuff for acceleration/control so it was a bit slow (paradox engine chromatic lantern, sensei's divining top, toxic deluge, thran dynamo). Got a couple more cards for your consideration though.

  • Sedraxis Alchemist is a essentially another aether adept (a bit stronger actually) and I really liked etb bounce mechanics in this deck so far.
  • Thoughtpicker Witch seems like a good inclusion for controlling opponent draw and gives a strong outlet for sacking the tokens, which is something I feel like this deck needs more of since it encourages people to trade against the token or else face extra value from sac. Also I think she's ok to put out for or and token sac.

anyway wanted to get your thoughts on those.

Hi! Nice deck, I see a lot of potential +1

If you're running Necropotence, then Venser's Journal and Reliquary Tower are a must. Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker also looks really good for a sub-theme within this deck.

These sac outlets are also great to exploit (and necessary if you want to keep Endrek alive) :

There are a ton of ways to utilize Endrek's ability.

Pawn of Ulamog would make Thoughtpicker Witch infinite...with all of these changes, do you think Gravecrawler is still relevant? The only reason it's valuable is because you can bring it back, but it can't block and can only work with other zombies. I'll sideboard Celestial Flare and add in Bone Splinters, will probably sideboard a few Revoke Existence. Then thinking of dropping Journey to Nowhere and using Faith's Shield to protect Viscera Seer or Solemnity. Shaping up to be a tough deck!!

Soul's Attendant/Soul Warden are both good ideas. There's Thoughtpicker Witch, but you have to pay B to sac. I don't think there are any other infinitely repeatable permanents that let you sac for free like the Seer. Stuff that lets you sac on your upkeep or for a mana cost. Bone Splinters could help offset the lack of a good double for the Seer. You can see the other 1CMC sac option permanents here:

Not sure if it is viable, or worthwhile in your deck, but I found Thoughtpicker Witch which may be something to think about. Stops tutors like Enlightened Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, ect. Also, granted by luck, can stop your opponents enchantments and artifacts before they hit.

Also considering 3x Spawning Pit to replace 4 Thoughtpicker Witch and then -1 Condemn + 2 Disenchant to add anti-Artifact/Enchantment.

Hey there! Cool deck you have here! I'd recommend adding in some strong sac outlets; Cartel Aristocrat and Viscera Seer are both good options. While Thoughtpicker Witch has a strong effect, I find it's generally really important to have your sac outlets be free. If you have the money, I'd also strongly recommend upgrading Duress to either Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize. In any case, welcome back to the game!
